      You can customize the content displayed by modules such as blogs, events, and news items. For example, you can modify the default news module to display the end date of each item (if specified).

      Customize a module

      1. Select Site Manager > Module Templates and click a module template.

        Note:Some module templates let you modify the content of a number of layouts. For example, the Blog Layouts template lets you customize the content of the individual post layout as well as the list layout.

      2. Insert additional content in the layout by selecting tags from the Data tab of the Toolbox, found on the right of the editor.

        The tags represent dynamic content in the module. For example, to display the end date of a news item, insert the {tag_eventtodate} in the detail layout of the News template. When published, the end date is displayed in the module.

        The tags available for a template differ depending on the template selected. For details, place your cursor over a tag in the Data tab of the toolbox for descriptions.

        For a full list of available tags, see the Tag Reference

      3. Remove content by deleting tags in the editor.

      4. Rearrange the content by moving the tags in the editor.

      5. Click Save.
